It is a shame that when I tried to download OSRIC a pop up window attempted
to download "EXP/Agent.B" onto my computer.

I would have recommended this system to the people I know who dislike
3e/3.5e, but I'm not prepared to help spread viruses so I'll keep quite
about it until Knights and Knaves dump downloadcounter.com.

I can't find any contact details for Knights and Knaves or Stuart Marshall.
Can anyone get in touch with them and ask them to disable the OSRIC download
link until they fix the problem? I think that Knights and Knaves also need
to publish an appology along with instructions on how to remove EXP/Agent.B
from your computer.

I don't know why they even use downloadcounter.com as the PDF itself is on
their own website. Here is the direct URL for anyone who wants to check out
OSRIC without getting hacked by downloadcounter.com:

(I'm not blaming Stuart Marshall for this, as I had a similar problem back
when I used Bravenet for hosting. Bravenet seemed happy to allow their
advertisers to attempt to hack all of my visitors. I tried to get them to
ban the problem advertisers, but they failed to respond to my support
requests. I now refuse to put any external content on my website. I'm sure
this is ignorance on the part of Knights and Knaves rather than an attempt
by them to hack role playing fans.)
